When it comes to having employees working for your business, they must be treated 100% fairly. While your employees are completing the work that they are being paid for in safe manners, at any moment, an accident can occur. What happens when a worker is injured on the job and needs medical attention? This is where workers’ compensation insurance comes in handy big time for the business.
At Everett Insurance, we are based in Glen Allen, VA, and serve the surrounding local areas as well. Our goal is to make sure that all of our clients are safe and provided with the proper legal insurance to comply with their needs. Businesses are required to have workers’ compensation to cover their employees in the worst-case scenarios. When you purchase this insurance, what does it cover for your business and employees?
If an employee becomes sick or suffers a work-related injury, they may need medical attention immediately. Choosing not to have workers compensation insurance can cost your business significantly financially down the road. Being able to provide your employees with proper assistance helps them get diagnosed and helps with the situation that occurred appropriately. There is paperwork that has to be filled out, such as an incident report, including details of how the injury/sickness happened. In some situations, employees have to take time off from work due to the injury/sickness, which means they are legally bound to be compensated in partial/full their regular wages while away.
